    For those who have trick or treaters what candy are you giving out?

    I'm giving out little boxes of raisins.

    One year I had some kids greet me with "Happy Halloween!" instead of the traditional "Trick or treat!" If anybody does that again I'm prepared for them; they're getting one of those little dental floss samples I get from the dentist's office when I get my teeth cleaned.

    I've been giving out sugar cubes spiked with LSD to all the college kids around here. No wonder the neighborhood has gotten so rowdy. Cars can't navigate the intersection of College and Ashby. Peps are running around, jumping on cars, rocking AC Transit busses and all kinds of shit. Too bad its not a full moon.

    I usually buy whatever is on sale at Target! I don't get many kids, so one bag is usually fine.

    This year I handed out candy at my sister's house. Their neighborhood is insane with kids - We went through 600 pieces of candy, one a piece, and still ran out (obviously we stocked up on the cheapest stuff). In their neighborhood, it's like a pint-sized zombie apocalypse with cute costumes, especially when a group of about 15 of them converge on you at once. icon_eek.gificon_lol.gif

    Yeah, that's how it was when I was a kid. We'd go out, fill up our pillowcase, go back home to dump it and head back out to a different neighborhood.

    When I bought this place (in the burbs) I had visions of that and bought 3 bags of candy. I think I got a grand total of 3 kids. The candy went into the freezer and I used it for several years thereafter for the half dozen kids that came by each year.

    I got 1 pair of high school kids!

    Part of the reason I got the raisins is so that I could use the leftovers. Candy would just go in the trash.

    I got candies that looked like punkins, eyes, spiders, etc. Last year we had almost no kids knocking on our door but this year was the total opposite and had to go to the store in the middle of it to get more sweets icon_cool.gif

    PS: If I was a kid and you gave me RAISINS I would do something very nasty on your yard...
